Time is running out!

It's hard to believe that the month of January is almost over.. Time is flying by and soon the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics will be starting! I also want to remind everyone that January 31st is the last day you are eligible for the Home Renovation Tax Credit (HRTC). The credit may be claimed on eligible expenses exceeding $1,000, but no more than $10,000, for a total credit of up to $1,350.

Renovating can be a great way to add value to your home. Whether you are considering selling your home, or you are hoping to make your home a more comfortable environment for you and your family, right now is a great time to start those renovations!

If you are looking to sell your home for top dollar, my recommendation is to utilize the HRTC and consider doing some renovations.

Paint! Having your home freshly painted in neutral colours attracts buyers and gives your home a calm, relaxed feeling while making your home look great.

Renovate your kitchen. Alongside cabinetry, counter tops and flooring, consider changing the hardware. A simple piece of hardware can help modernize almost any kitchen.

How are your floors? It is the perfect time to put in those hardwood floors you have always wanted.

Take advantage of the HRTC while it is still in effect! Ensure before you make purchases, that the renovations are eligible for the credit!

Last but not least, I want to encourage everyone to please help Haiti and all those that have been affected by the earthquakes. Please visit www.redcross.ca or any other website accepting donations to help.
